Who we are

Leading adult education charity, The WEA, empowers adults through learning at all stages of life. We bring great teaching to local communities, reaching around 50,000 students a year across England and Scotland.

We believe all adults should have access to the opportunities of education, right on their doorstep. With 2,000+ dedicated professional tutors, 5,000+ active volunteers and supportive members, we spread our impact nationwide - with every new voice making us louder!

At the WEA, we want the most disadvantaged adults in society to have access to learning opportunities. We reach people others can’t and through learning we help people create positive life changes that ripple out from individuals to communities. This mission continues to inform everything we do but it’s only possible with your support. Without your help, we wouldn't be able to ensure that the most disadvantaged adults have access to learning opportunities.
